I was also thinking this same..why here is so little ppl example from Egypt? Im also from Finland but i would like to find ppl from muslim countrys...its seems to bee little bit hard 🙁
Yes it's the problem justly...! I'm learning arabic egyptian called too "language of Cairo" and on this site I'ven't any penpal from Egypt. 🙁
For Muslim country, I just found a few members, I want to meet more too 🙁
I have heard that the founder of this site is a French at the chat room before,
so there are lots of members from France 😉
Besides, I think the number of members from a country has also reflected the culture and custom of the country to some extent 😉
For Asian countries, such as China and Japan,
I think the teenagers there need to face a lot of stress from study,
lots of homework, and eventually they don't have much time to meet new penpals 🙁
Besides, for Japan and some Muslim country,
I think the number is affected by their culture too,
as I know most of them tend to be conservative and don't like to contact with foreigners much,
in order to avoid culture conflicts or difficulties in communicating in foreign languages 😉
Not for everybody... 🙁
When someone want to know a new language and really to talk this language he know that's better to have a penpal. So much school do exchange or journeys of somes days in others countries...I don't know if it's only because it's the crisis...! -_-
Indeed there are many, many French people here (which is actually a problem for me as I don't really need to improve my French or to discover my own country culture, but no offense dear Frenchies !)!
About Egyptian and Greek people, I guess they're probably such in trouble right now - for different reasons - that they don't have time to look for penpals all over the world...?
Moreover, I don't know about Macedonians, but I believe Japanese, Greeks and Egyptians just don't write with the same letters as French, English or Italian people do... that makes communication even more complicated for them, doesn't it ?
I'm really not sure about all what I'm saying, but I hope it answers (a little) the question...
(and just tell me if I'm stupid in English and correct me, please!)
Me too! 🙂
It's the problem. I don't need to speak french which is my own language and to discover my country me either,that I've passed my childhood to discover! 😃
Yeah i know ppl in Egypt and Greek they have hard time right now...I know lots off ppl from Egypt and they speak and write english so letters shouldnt be a problem. Maybe they just dosent use this kind of forums 🙁. Hope some of them will find they way in here also 🙂
I'm agree with you! 😁
I hope too. 🙂
Besides, although a lot of members on this site want to meet British members and improve their English,
I don't find much British members on this site 😉
I think most members are Europeans instead 🙂
When they love us and gives us a little of their time, of course. 😉
I find it sad that they're so much frenchies more than foreigner... :mellow Can matters Europeans or not penpals haven't so much time even in Holidays! Then we're as us. :mellow
